Russia ‘borrows $13.6bn in largest ever debt issuance in a single day’ to continue faltering war

Russia has acquired its biggest measure of money ever in a solitary day to raise assets for the Ukraine war, English guard bosses have said.
In order to continue Vladimir Putin’s faltering invasion, Russia’s finance ministry issued its largest ever debt issuance on Wednesday, totaling $13.6 billion (£11.4 billion).
The Ministry of Defense (MoD) warned in its most recent intelligence report that the raised funds are a “key mechanism to sustain defense spending.”
The Ministry of Defense stated that, despite the raised amount, the ministry is likely “anticipating an increasingly uncertain fiscal environment over the next year.”The ministry continued:Russia issued its largest single-day debt ever on November 16, 2022, raising RUB 820 (USD $13.6 billion).
This is important to Russia because debt issuance is a key way to keep spending on defense, which has gone up a lot since the invasion of Ukraine.
“Russia’s declared ‘national defense’ spending for 2023 is planned at approximately RUB 5 trillion (USD $84 billion), which is more than 40% higher than the preliminary 2023 budget that was announced in 2021.”
They continued,In times of uncertainty, issuing debt is costly.
The size of this auction probably means that the Russian Ministry of Finance thinks things are going well right now, but that they are expecting a more uncertain fiscal environment over the next year.It comes as Russia asserted that its massive Satan-2 hypersonic missile had successfully completed flight tests.
Despite rumors that the missile’s development was behind schedule, the Russian defense ministry’s announcement provided no launch details.The report has not yet been verified by Western sources.
The rocket, formally named the RS-28 Sarmat, is essentially as large as a 14-story tower block and Russian proselytizers consistently take steps to utilize it against Western foes, particularly the UK and US.
In the meantime, after discovering explosive traces on the Baltic Seabed, investigators confirmed that “gross sabotage” caused the Nord Stream pipelines to break earlier this year.
In September, the pipes, which are a crucial route along which Russia delivers gas to Europe, were damaged.Russia has denied that the pipelines were damaged.
Subsequent to experiencing significant mishaps in Ukraine, Russia has completed different rocket strikes which have supposedly obliterated close to half of the country’s energy framework.
In a nation with a population of approximately 44 million prior to the war, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated earlier that approximately 10 million people are without power at the moment.He claimed that emergency blackouts were forced by authorities in some areas.
According to Ukrenergo, the national grid operator for Ukraine, “the aggressor country has officially recognized that its goal is to destroy our energy infrastructure and leave Ukrainians without electricity and heat.”
In October and November, it said, Russia had launched six large-scale missile attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.
